Five students driving through the desert encounter the inescapable stench of death in director David Payne's retro-inspired slasher/monster/supernatural horror hybrid.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An unusually dull slasher..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The biggest problem is that unless your cinema is equipped with Smell-O-Vision, then the supposedly terrifying stench of the creature is likely to be lost on you, no matter how often the actors screw up their faces and go 'Ewwww!'"
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"The camerawork is polished, the production values high, the audience sufficiently kicked about, and the blood and guts ever-present. All in all, a pretty darn good effort."
‑ Oz,
"Is it dramatically worse than other run-of-the-mill horror/mysteries? Nope. But that's hardly a ringing endorsement."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"There's one basic problem here: this horror flick isn't remotely scary."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"I could name about a half-dozen horror movies that are very similar in story to Reeker, but this one's an improvement over most of those flicks."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"From its arresting opening to its mind-bending denouement, Reeker proves that the horror genre will always gain from the right amount of Payne."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"A gore flick with surprising smarts and heart -- not to mention a flat-out fun ride."
‑ Brian Juergens, Bloody Disgusting
